Adoptees Push for Change in Immigration Law And ‘Curious City’ On Polish Chicago

On today’s show:

  • Since the end of WWII, thousands of children have been adopted into the U.S. from foreign countries. Now, a loophole in immigration law leaves them without U.S. citizenship. We hear from a group trying to change that.
  • Plus, Chicago has a strong and vibrant Polish community. But how just how Polish is this city, really? Jesse Dukes from WBEZ’s Curious City answers those and more questions in a special documentary on Polish Chicago.
